We are a small family run business serving mainly Italian dishes but also several British dishes. Meals are prepared fresh each day. We also sell authentic Italian gelato in a range of flavours. We pride ourselves on providing a friendly welcoming service and try to be as adaptable with our meals to suite those with food allergies, providing a choice of gluten free pasta, bread and using gluten free flour in sauces and our home made crespelle.
